The Alesis SR16 Drum Machine has been used by everyone from songwriters to live performers to remix engineers as their drum machine of choice. The reason is simple: it features a great selection of 233 realistic, natural drum sounds, offered both in dry form and sampled reverbs. The exclusive Dynamic Articulation feature enables a drum sound to change its tonal content as it's played harder for truly realistic performances.
The SR16 Drum Machine features 50 preset patterns that were actually played in by top studio drummers, not just programmed and quantized. You'll find enough built-in rhythmic variations (with A, B and two Fill sections) for composing complete arrangements, and you can create and save your own customised patterns and songs.
Fits into any workflow
Finally, the Alesis SR16 also provides complete MIDI implementation for use with computers and other MIDI enabled equipment, a footswitch input for additional triggering, flexible programming and editing features and velocity-sensitive pad buttons. Plus, it's so easy to use that you'll be up-and-running and composing new music in minutes.
Whether you need a songwriting partner or an accompanist for live performance, turn to the all-time world standard in drum machines: the Alesis SR-16 and see what rhythmical creations you can come up with.

Overall, the sounds produced are very authentic and blend very well, while the interface could be a bit user-friendlier. I can't imagine a drum machine sounding much better than this.
